msflxgrd.ocx problem

I was trying to opening my project this morning and VB6 keeps telling me that it couldn't load the msflxgrd.ocx and that maybe I'm not using the wrong version - which I am. It worked just fine yesterday and the only changes I've made to my system was to install novell groupwise. I've made no changes to the program! I have tried reinstalling VB6 but it didn't help.

Download Filemon or NTFilemon from www.sysinternals.com
Start Filemon and now run the application that gives the error.
Filemon will show a trace. In this trace it will also show you which
file failed to open. That's the one you are missing.

Filemon can be redirected in a dos box using filemon > output.txt

Copy the missing files and register them if needed with regsvr32.exe in case of DLL/OCX files

It can also be that you have the wrong version.
In that case download ProcessViewer from http://www.teamcti.com/pview/prcview.htm
This application shows the Modules as in use by a process. Compare the situation in which it does work with the situation in which it does not work. Goto your application and choose modules from the context menu. Copy and register the different DLL.

I have downloaded Process Monitor and filtered for just Access related threads but there are still so many that it's hard to determine what the problem is. Should I be looking at processes or registry keys?
